Simple pricing a non-techie can understand

Stop counting VMs, hosts, CPUs, and stop paying “annual maintenance.”

Pricing for HubStor Backup-as-a-Service is a simple baseline cost each month with pay-as-you-go, low-cost storage pricing.

Storage costs are after compression savings:

  • Archive tier: $0.003 / GB
  • Cool tier: $0.03 / GB (default)

With HubStor, you’re in control. You tune the policies to control storage tiering and the retention of your backups.

The backup capabilities you need without the noise

Protecting your vSphere and Hyper-V environments doesn’t need to be complex. Really. And it doesn’t need to consume so much of your time and budget.

15-mins to deploy

Be up and running with the agentless HubStor Backup Service in 15 minutes, enabling you to begin reliable protection of your VMs.

Simple admin

Manage backups at any level in your virtualization topology. Monitor backup and restore jobs globally, per data center, per hypervisor, and for each individual VM.

Seamless replicas

Know that your backups replicate seamlessly in HubStor, giving you an instant offsite copy with a segregated geo-replica hundreds of miles away.

Reliable storage

Preserve backups in HubStor with storage economics as low as $0.003 per gigabyte monthly based on actual storage size after compression savings.

Full encryption

Enjoy AES 256-bit encryption both in flight and at rest, ensuring your backups are private.

Ditch the ball and chain that is legacy backup architecture

The old-school approach costs you precious time and money.

Sound familiar?

  • Your expensive backup software writes to secondary storage.
  • Another backup product writes the backup sets to tape.
  • Tape backups are then delivered offsite.

The problem is that this model is a burden to set up, monitor, and manage which is eating up your time and budget.

Experience modern backup simplicity

With HubStor Backup-as-a-Service, you only set up a local cache for your most recent backup set(s), and HubStor does the rest.

How HubStor automates your entire backup architecture:

  • HubStor keeps your most recent backup set(s) locally for fast RTO.
  • All backup sets reside with HubStor encrypted in the cloud.
  • Optionally leverage the low-cost Archive tier in HubStor for long-term retention of your backups at $0.003 per GB monthly.
  • Cloud storage delivers three synchronous replicas of your data.
  • HubStor also creates a geo-redundant copy that is segregated from the primary cloud copy in the cloud’s archive tier (physically tape).

The safe play against ransomware

Malicious actors are getting smarter — many know how to circumvent legacy backup technologies.

Here’s how HubStor protects you:

  • Your local backups are also stored in the cloud, encrypted.
  • The cloud copy resides on immutable object storage.
  • And HubStor maintains an additional segregated copy in the cloud also.
  • You can recover virtual machines instantly in the cloud or on-premises.
